Bedrock Chronicles

I wonder what Flintstones show is going to be next on Warner Home Video's DVD list?
To give you an idea of how many Flintstones spin-off shows there were, I found this article in a 1988 issue of Cartoon Quarterly with words and art by the great illustrator, Scott Shaw!

Wow, that certianly was impressive. If only they did something similar when giving other cartoon character's histories - it'd be much more in-te-rest-ing and fun!

Fred's first version (facing his updated version): "Who's that guy?"
Fred's updated version (facing his old version): "I don't understand! This is my old version!"

Quite after this article was made, more Flintstones stuff were made: the three specials produced in 1993: I Yabba Dabba Do (Bamm-Bamm & Pebbles get married), Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby (where Pebbles is a mother of two nice babies [this special brings special appearances of Raquel Welch and Billy Joel in the animated format]) and A Flintstone Family Christmas; the two live-action versions made for the movies (The Flintstones: The Movie [1994, with John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rick Moranis, Rosie O'Donnell, Elizabeth Taylor, Kyle McLachan and Halle Berry] and The Flintstones: Viva Rock Vegas [2000, with Mark Addy, Kristen Johnson, Stephen Baldwin, Jane Krakowsi and Joan Collins]); the cartoon series Cave Kids: Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm (1996), which is aimed for the pre-scholars; and the specials The Flintstones on the Rocks (2001 [with the design made by Craig Kellman]) and The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown (2015).
